Lately, I find myself daydreaming about living on a farm. In a big old farmhouse, with my vegetables all planted in rows, and chickens out in the barn. A big red barn, of coarse. Maybe some horses and cows out in the pasture.
We have even been looking at properties which would fit the bill for a mini-farm. Unfortunately, I do not think it's going to work out for us. Have you priced 15 acres with an old house on it lately? Ouch!
I'm thinking this will have to do for now. Did you know that some people raise chickens in their backyards? I didn't. The appeal of gathering fresh organic eggs from my own backyard is growing on me. Now all I have to do is convince my husband that we need 4 or 5 pet chickens. And a little red barn-style coop. It's all about the red barn, I tell you.
